Home Made Laundry Detergent ( No Grating, Cooking) $9 for 6 Months Worth !

Making homemade laundry soap is not hard at all. I have a great recipe that you can use, no grating, no cooking- Simple and so easy and so much cheaper than store bought brands. You can use this on Top Load or Front Load Machines.


Three Items You will Need:


Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda (55 oz Powder) $ 4.79 - Sold at Ace Hardware StoresBorax $2.50- $3  -Sold at Walmart, Kmart You can do a store locater HERE
Dawn Dish Soap 0.97
HOW TO MIX YOUR LIQUID GOLD!

Now on to the Fun Part of how to use these three items to make your laundry soap.
You will need a Gallon Jug - If you have any emtpy laundry bottles around you can use them or some empty Milk Jugs.

For Each Gallon You Will Need:

(3) Tablespoons Borax
(3) Tablespoons Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
(2) Tablespoons Dawn
Put all three items in your Jug - Pour in 4 Cups of Boiling Water. Mix around until everything is disolved. Let it set for about 30 minutes to cool off. Fill the jug up with warm water to the top. Dont worry if you have bubbles flowing out while you do this, its normal.

How Much to Use Per Load - I recomend about 1/2 Cup of your new home made liquid gold to start with and adjust to what you feel you need per load .

Benefits of Making Your Own
*Dawn - Works wonders on removing grease,wine, grass stains and so much more - has alot of scented items, so if your looking for a bit more scent just go with one of those.

*Borax- Naturally softens hard water and will keep your whites briter with out the use of bleach and is more gentle on clothing. * Keeps Mildew out of your machine!

*Arm & Hammer Washing Soda - Works great for removing odor from clothing

** SO MUCH CHEAPER- About $9 you can make enough laundry detergent to last about 6 -8 months.That averages about $1.50 a Month ! Nice Savings huh? since an average bottle of laundry detergent cost $5-8 for a small one.

Here is an idea of Savings by Making Your Own

If you buy 1 Per Week @ $6 = $24 a Month x 6 Months = $144
Making Your Own  $9 for 6 Months Worth
TOTAL SAVED $ $135 !

  3. Also an FYI, the super washing soda is toxic, and says should be handled with gloves on, so if u are using for babies, maybe rethink as they have sensitive skin :)
